Review: Brother Firetribe – Sunbound

This sounds absolutely epic, and I am not being cheesy when I use the term epic because it is. ‘Sunbound’ is a gigantic track despite being just over a minute long, but if this track is anything to go by then the album will be phenomenal. ‘Help is on The Way’ doesn’t disappoint as its large rhythmical hooks take hold and allow you ...

Review: Assignment – Inside Of The Machine

Formed by guitarist Goran Panic, Assignment have released two albums previously; Inside Of The Machine (available on Mausoleum Records) offers around 70 minutes of what they refer to as “art metal” but, to a low-life like me, it’s progressive metal that tips its hat to the likes of Queensryche and Ayreon. The band line-up is comprised of keyboard player Gert Sprick, bass ...

Maybe it was because I’d been reading too many detective novels, but there was something that didn’t feel quite right about the revelation of a super group going under the name Revolution Saints. The first we heard about them was that guitarist Doug Aldrich had left a fat pay cheque with Whitesnake to form the band. But that got back-peddled, and ...

Review: H.E.A.T. – Tearing Down The Walls

A haunting melody of some regret stirs from the notes of a keyboard in cinematic overture before being edged out by the crash and ride of a bopping rock charge over which a young voice calls out: “My heart is on fire and I want you to feel the same. No turning back. Here I am. Here we stand – ...

Review: Stars & Flights – Moral Colour

South Wales has a bit of a reputation for doling out some great rock music, and progressive-alt-rock trio Stars & Flights certainly do nothing to dent this reputation. Having had praise from the likes of Radio 1 Rock Show’s Dan P. Carter and critical acclaim for their debut album, Dropping Anchors, this June sees the release of their latest effort, ...
